In determining whether a person had the intent to shoplift, the courts will usually look at whether you or the accused passed all points of sale (all registers, cashiers, self-check out, etc.). It depends on where you were in the store when they stopped you.
I had an incident where I was speeding, I got scared when i saw the police lights, and ran from the officer in my vehicle, then calmed down and left my car in park to walk back to where the officer had stopped to turn myself in. In court, the judge ruled it as a traffic infraction with no points... Read more »

The first and only thing she should do now is secure defense counsel. She should not be speaking with anyone about the situation - period. Only discussions with legal counsel are protected.

The municipal court mentioned something about a restricted record. Will my arrest show up? Is there any way to check? I want to be able to have a clean... Read more »

If the case has a record restriction, it should only be available to law enforcement.

In an elementary school the parent pick up line starts to form more than 90 min before the students are released at the end of the day. The line is very long and the PTA has auctioned off the first two spots in the front of the line for the two parents (with the highest bid) to arrive anytime... Read more »

I don't hear anything illegal about what you have described. As long as the school's administration approves and there are no safety or traffic laws broken, the PTA can auction off those coveted spots. On the other hand, enforcement may prove interesting!

It all depends on the Sheriffs. Different counties have different policies. However, you may want to just check with TX and see when they are going to pick him up first. Because if they make a promise to pick him up he may not be released in 14 days.

Sure. However there's a complicated thing called the state tort claims act so the best thing is to consult a member of the Ga. Trial Lawyers Assn in that county --they give free consults.

After success completion of the diversion program, you case will be dismissed. Thus, giving you the opportunity to have that arrest and that charge Restricted from you Record with a record restriction. I hope this helps!

Possibly, depends on what information they provided. If the neighbors told the police they saw you kill someone and bury them in the backyard then of course that would be enough to justify a search warrant to dig up your backyard.
What about tannerite? How far should I be from a neighbors house? I am asking about a legal perspective and not just concerning safety.
answered on May 14, 2018
There is no set distance from a home. If done unsafely than you can be charged with reckless conduct, a misdemeanor. You might also want to look out county or city ordinances. Some cities restrict entirely the ability to fire a gun in their jurisdiction unless for self defense purposes.

Call the court and ask them the fine amount. SInce you weren't arrested, you won't have an arrest record for this.

I know of no law allowing any lawsuit 14 years later. The law in every state puts time limits on when litigation must be pursued, and you fit none of the exceptions to allow this out-of-time filing.
